Israel Army Was Given Green Light To Use Combat Drones For Targeted Killings In West Bank

Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) commanders in the occupied West Bank have been given the green light to use combat drones to carry out targeted killings of Palestinian gunmen by Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi, Israeli media reported on September 28.

The commanders will now be allowed to use drones not only for surveillance and intelligence gathering, but also to carry out strikes on gunmen who pose imminent threats to Israeli troops in the West Bank.

The decision came in response to a surge in shooting attacks targeting Israeli troops and settlers in the West Bank. For the last few months, the IDF has been trying to deter and intimidate Palestinians in the region by intensifying its security operations.

Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi reportedly green lighted the use of combat drones against Palestinian gunmen in the West Bank during a meeting with Central Command chief Maj.-Gen. Yehuda Fuchs and West Bank Division Commander Brig.-Gen. Avi Blot. The meeting was held following an IDF raid in the city of Jenin that claimed the lives of four gunmen.

In September, The Jerusalem Post revealed that IDF commanders in the West Bank were trained on the use of combat drones during security operations.

Commander of the Judea and Samaria Division Brig.-Gen. Yaniv Alaluf and commander of the Menashe Brigade Col. Arik Moyal were trained to operate an air force assault command center that monitors and controls armed drones, namely the Elbit Hermes 450.

Kohavi gave the green light to use combat drones in an attempt to reduce the escalation of violence in the West Bank. However, this new policy will likely backfire and lead to more escalation and violence in the occupied Palestinian region as it allows the IDF to engage suspected gunmen with more freedom.

Funny. United States is giving green light to Israel to attack West Bank and to Ukraine to attack Russia. Gues what. U.S. cannot wipe it ass without being afraid of consequences, see Soleimani affair and its aftermath. Russian ambassador gave the US last warning. You are not safe across Atlantic. Make your choice.

All the world is getting fed up of sionist racists that believe to be superior to all others ,considered similar to animals in your nazi bible talmud .Luckily there are tolerant jews that follow the torah and that need to teach you clearly what humanity is

Don’t worry Ukraine Nazi, winter comes and you are done. Zionists so far lasted 70~ years with leeching on rich Western countries and living under a rock. Like before we all going to finish your kind again – but again most Zionists are mixed race… Fake Jews.

Iron lion Zion or leib =lion in yiddish the root of many Ashkenazic last names eg- Liebowitz-lefkowitz- Lebush-Leon so he could be Ashkenazic .

Interesting speculation. I prefer a more pragmatic description based on his output. This would properly identify him as a low grade hasbara imbecile only worthy of our contempt

Probably plays call of duty
